Students from MCTC visit Standard Heating
The 2012 Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC) class of Minneapolis Community & Technical College (MCTC) visited the Minneapolis facility of Standard Heating & Air Conditioning (SHAC).
As community partners, both organizations are committed to the educational, cultural and recreational development of the Twin Cities. MCTC is able to attract superior students that could possibly end up working for great local companies; they are pioneer in offering activities on campus and off site to help develop strong programs to meet the needs of today’s employers. Due of this, Standard Heating & Air Conditioning recruits skilled students from their unparalleled HVAC program.
“We look for trustworthy professionals that are happy to have a smile on their face when they do whatever it takes to satisfy customers.” That was one of Greg Schleifer’s key points when talking to the 20+ students in our training room, our Instillation Manager. Two groups came to the building, one at 1 p.m. and another one at 3 p.m. Here is what they did:
Introduction to the company
The afternoon started with a brief introduction of the students to Standard Heating & Air Conditioning held in the Training Room, the same room that is use to continually train our experts. In there, students were introduced to Greg, Tim, and Melissa, our Installation, Service, and Human Resources managers. After the introduction, there was a Q&A session where students were able to ask as many questions as they had related to careers at Standard Heating, and insight of the experts in the matter.
Tour of the building
Standard Heating moved to our new facility in September 2007, and since them we have been proud to showcase our state-of-the-art building. After time for conversation and discussion, students tour the entire facility going from the Training Room, the Office, the Warehouse, the Sheet Metal shop, the Refrigerant Room, and the Parts department. Students were engaged and asked several questions.
Both owners of Standard Heating & Air Conditioning are very engaged with the community. They have been lecturer of trade schools in the area as well of part of part of the chair of the schools. To learn more about them visit the Meet the Owners page.
We thank Minneapolis Community & Technical College as well as Greg Skudlarek for allowing their HVAC students to meet with Standard Heating & Air Conditioning. We hope to continue our strong relationship in our involvement with the surrounding community.
